Google Maps is constantly changing, either to adapt to the COVID-19 or to provide more clarity in giving the information required. Especially when looking for information about certain places, a real nightmare for the Maps interface. Now Google wants to improve it with automatic augmented reality.

The fact is that the information about the places we are looking for is in the map view, and not in Street View, leaving you a little disoriented in the service. Google is now trying to add markers with location information in augmented reality format directly in Street View.

Google Maps improves your information

These markers, in Street View, will show us the same information that we will see in normal map view but in an augmented reality format so that we can get a better feel for the location we are viewing.

According to 9to5Google, Google is making use of their augmented reality system to complement these signs to the standing routes they already added in their day. With the camera on our mobile phone we can visualize the routes we can follow to access these establishments and now with these markers we can see all kinds of information.

A small icon will give us the necessary information to find out what type of establishment it is, and by clicking on the button a menu will be displayed with all the available information. Telephone number, name of the premises, exact address, etc. We will only have to leave the mouse or the finger on the bubbles to see all this information.

The information will be displayed in a panel on the left if we click on the bubble, giving us information in the form of images and customer opinions. This is a very powerful adaptation of the type of information we can currently see in the map view.

Only for some users

As usual with Google, you have only activated this change on a trial basis for a very limited number of users and locations. Therefore, it is very difficult for you to be able to see it in your Google Maps app. However, since the feature seems very advanced, it will most likely arrive on our smartphones and computers within a few weeks.

However, this applies for now only to the web version, and we’ll have to wait to see the feature in the Google Maps app for smartphones. Neither Google nor 9to5Mac have given details on when we will be able to activate this feature which many will appreciate, especially those of us who do not have a very good sense of direction.

  1. The self education industry is a $355 Million per day industry and is expected to TRIPLE in the next 5 years! And with the right strategy this could be your opportunity to:

    Get in early before it is oversaturated.
    Help others go faster while you get paid
    Fix a broken system
    Make an impact on the world
    Get paid for a skill, hobby, passion or expertise you already have (or get paid from someone else’s)

    And Tony Robbins, Russell Brunson and Dean Graziosi are finally going to show YOU how to take advantage of it…

    (Now if you don’t already know who these 3 guys are then you’ll want to listen up!! They’ve impacted millions of lives and have generated billions of dollars)

    Look, if you’ve ever thought about (or even if you never thought about) getting paid for something you know (like a passion or a skill)… or even getting paid from what others know, then you have to attend.

    This is one of the fastest growing industries online and in all areas of the world.

    And for the first time ever they’re doing a webclass training on how to extract your wisdom (or somebody else’s) and get other people to pay you for it!

    You can save your spot here (and when you do register, you’re immediately going to get a brand new, never before seen training from Tony and Dean. No one else will ever get a chance to see this rare training except for us).

    After hearing what they’re teaching, I truly believe this is the #1 way to make a massive income, make a massive impact on the world and leave a legacy!

    And here’s just a fraction of what you’ll learn this week:

    The mostly hidden $129 Billion dollar market and how you can make a massive impact and leave a legacy by profiting from it.

    The KBB Triangle: The 3 ways to profit (whether you’re an expert with a thriving business, just getting started, or even if you’re at complete rock bottom)

    The framework to profit from what you (or someone else) already knows – or by creating community and bringing people together.

    Plus you’ll even be able to ask them questions when they do Q&A at the end of the training. (Chat is limited so show up early).

    There’s no other time where you’re going to have this opportunity. So BE THERE! Because if you’re not going to make a shift in your life now, then when? And if not with these guys, then let me ask with who?

    This is your rare chance to learn from 3 people who started from nothing and went on to generate billions of dollars and build massive companies.

    Spots are filling up faster than they ever have, so you need to hurry and go here to save your spot
